Xhaka: ‘Arsenal have proven we have the fight to compete’

Granit Xhaka believes that Arsenal are showing the doubters that his side have the fight and aggression needed to succeed after some tough times of late.

Could failed midfielder signing have changed Arsenal’s campaign?

Arsenal have endured a tiresome season which has left us with a huge uphill battle to try and make the top-four.

Arsenal injury update with Koscielny and Xhaka set for tests

Arsenal could be without Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny for their trip to take on Southampton tomorrow.
